Baltimore, MD alternative rock band The Dangerous Summer return with their biggest sounding record to date...

The Dangerous Summer have returned with what is shaping up to be their biggest sounding LP to date. The new singles are drenched with emotion, loud guitars, massive choruses, and AJ's trademark vocal style, only with bigger production and more variation. This feels like the logical next step from their last outstanding LP "Mother Nature", and if the three new singles are evident of anything, it's that these guys are not slowing down anytime soon. They may have peeled back some of the more upbeat emotional pop-poppunk sounds they made their name on with Reach for the Sun, but the maturity and progress is undeniable, and shows a band that is destined to expand their fanbase with this new LP, while still pleasing old school fans as well. Can't wait to hear more on this release and share some thoughts and look forward to hearing them crank these songs out in a live setting.

Baltimore, MD's The Dangerous Summer have announced details surrounding their new, upcoming album ‘Coming Home’ out August 26 via Rude Records. 

Coming Home’ ushers in a new era for The Dangerous Summer. They’ve shaken the snow globe a bit, adding longtime touring guitarist Withenshaw (ex-Every Avenue) as an official member alongside Zawacki, as well. They recorded with Will Beasley (Turnstile, Asking Alexandria, Emarosa), a protégé of producer Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, Yellowcard, The Used), who worked on a large swath of the band’s catalog.

 “We named the album ‘Coming Home’ because it’s about coming back to ourselves,” Perdomo explains. “A full rock band vibe centered around driving guitars and emotionally heart-wrenching lyrics. It felt like a full-circle moment. It was the first time the four of us got in a room, lived in the studio for almost two months, and dug deep with sleepless nights and everything to get it done.”

 The Dangerous Summer never sacrificed their unique, diverse sonic identity, one that appeals to fans of everything from Kings Of Leon and Coldplay to Jimmy Eat World and Bright Eyes. Coming Home is a triumphant summary of what the band is all about - past, present, and future.
